One of must see places in the world. The parks makes you feel like the big bang just happened. With geysers, and rainbow colored pools, to boiling mud, kids and adults will be in awe. Visit in the summer so that you have access to hiking trails. Otherwise, you can see a fair amount from the main drive.
